Kitchen Garden

The Kitchen Garden Café is a tranquil oasis in the heart of Kings Heath’s busy shopping centre, combining a garden shop, café, deli and meeting room surrounding an old blue brick courtyard.

At the licensed Café you’ll find a variety of delicious and wholesome things to eat, all freshly made right here, including an A la Carte Menu on Thursday to Saturday evenings and Sunday lunch. We have a separate children’s menu and small play area.

We try to use the best seasonal, local and fairly-traded produce, including organics where we can, to ensure that the cooking retains all the real flavour of good food.

There’s also a Deli where you can purchase organic, fair-trade and locally sourced food to take home, including organic wines, beers & spirits, plus jams and preserves made in our own kitchen.

You can hire our meeting room or even the whole café for your meetings, celebrations and events. We can supply hot and cold buffets to suit a range of budgets.

We also host live music, comedy and poetry including regular events such as Laughing Cows (all female comedy nights), The Retort Cabaret Show (an eclectic mix of music, comedy, poetry and alternative cabaret). Storytelling Café (bringing storytelling back to adult audiences) and Poetry Bites.

Text supplied by third party.
